COLDWATER (WTVB) - No one was injured in an explosion and fire in Coldwater at the Aleris North plant on West Garfield Avenue. The Coldwater Fire Department responded to the alarm that came shortly after 10 p.m. Monday. Fire Chief Rich Sherman said while en-route, the call was upgraded as the facility reported the explosion with a loader on fire inside the building. The flames were contained to the loader and Sherman said numerous fire extinguishers were used on the blaze. The source of the explosion was a reaction with molten aluminum. The driver of the loader was evaluated by fire personnel and LifeCare Ambulance.
